The World At Play Bike Ride is an annual ride that cycles the length of Sognefjord, Norway's longest fjord (and the second longest in the world), and over Tindevegen, one of the most beautiful mountains in the country and the gateway to the Land of the Giants. The ride takes place over 3 days, covering nearly 300km. The first two days cover rolling, beautiful terrain right next to the Fjord, and the third day is an epic mountain climb ensuring everyone finishes on a real high!
Each year the ride raises money for World At Play, a charity that uses sport and play to educate children in the Balkans, and more recently Syrian refugees in Turkey. The ride is organised by us at World At Play; meaning every penny you raise goes to the charity rather than event management companies.
This is a fully supported ride that will appeal to anyone who has dreamed of cycling through a beautiful area of the world, accomplishing a great challenge and making a tangible difference to children who face real difficulties.
